Acting as the Legion's de facto homeworld, its terrain was arid and volcanic. Bodt was a "barracks" world and proving grounds for the World Eaters. It was inhabited by Numen Gun Clans, which often served in Imperial Army units attached to World Eaters expeditions. As the World Eaters conducted live fire exercises and established industry upon Bodt, it became a polluted, unstable, and toxic planet. Bodt also maintained a vault of ancient and forbidden weapons overseen by Tech-Priests from Sarum, known as the Crimson Priests.[2a]

In the aftermath of the Drop Site Massacre, senior World Eaters Apothecaries in cooperation with the Word Bearers arrived on Bodt, where they established bio-vats to create new warriors at a rapid pace. What resulted were rage-filled monsters of pure aggression. Initiates who survived the process awoke thinking they were a veteran of countless wars.[2a]

In 008.M31 during the Heresy, Bodt was assaulted by Shattered Legions Iron Hands under Autek Mor, who razed the planet after a savage battle.[2b]
